Billy Wagner Will Return After The Weekend Series
According to several reports that are citing Mets sources, Billy Wagner will be activated on Tuesday when he becomes eligible to come off the disabled list.
The Mets are an impressive 21-9 since Wagner was put on the disabled list, but there is no denying how much he has been missed in the bullpen.
Yesterday, during his regular weekly spot on ESPN Radio 1050, Billy Wagner said the following,
“I feel good and I am ready to go. I can’t wait to join my teammates and contribute.”
He also added…
“I know what my job is and I know what I’m best suited to do, but we’re trying to get into the playoffs and I want Jerry to know I will pitch in any role necessary even if it means not being the closer.”
Talk about a great “team first” attitude. Don’t worry about it though Billy…
You will certainly be used exclusively as the closer for the rest of this season, however if the Mets get K-Rod in the offseason, we reserve the right to revisit this situation.
Hey… I’m just saying…
